Caitlyn says: We have been putting our parks pass to good use this summer in Rocky Mountain National Park. Each weekend my husband and I set out from a different trailhead in RMNP for early morning hikes. We have been rewarded with stunning views and plenty of encounters with marmots and elk.

I am proud to share that I completed my first ever summit of Longs Peak this weekend! What a thrill. Here is a photo of me below the Keyhole before starting the climb to the peak. Weather conditions were excellent, so I was able to take my time and calmly choose my route in the exposed sections.
